Random Rome, our second day

Our second day isn’t over but I thought I’d try to write now, while tastes of “zuppa inglese” gelato still dance on my taste buds. Nothing should be allowed to taste that good.Tomorrow we will be busy traveling and getting settled in Prato.

After much discussion regarding the merits of the On/Off bus tours, we opted for walking again today.

We saw Trajian’s column, the Roman Forum, the Colosseum and the Spanish Steps. We also stumbled on this great place for paininis and smoothies called “Ginger sapori & salute” on Via Borogognona.

While walking we caught the romantic rhythms of musicians serenading patrons of various outdoor cafes. There were also a couple of creative street performers under the heading, “what were they thinking?” See them below.

About Babs

I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water. Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist. My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.
